The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD, viewed in component video, exhibits generally pleasing quality. While images are generally sharp and detailed with good shadow delineation, contrast is mediocre, with bright backgrounds and on-camera lights sometimes overpowering the foreground. Minor film grain is noticed, as well as pixelization, artifacts and occasional edge enhancement. Colors are balanced and often rich in hue, though sometimes slightly yellow in fleshtone rendering. Blacks are deep and solid. Some may think the film looks amaterish, but overall, the image quality is generally pleasing.
Reason #129 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I enjoy the in-depth look at industry trends, informative and intelligent articles on emerging technologies, and of course, the new products in the Coming Soon…section. I like the fact that your magazine is not jammed packed with manufacturer’s marketing and sales ads. I understand having some but not as many as your competitor (HTM). I enjoy the movie reviews, which I found to be much more accurate than others (HTM). And lastly, I am a fellow Hungarian like Gary, heck we even share the same fascination for high-tech gadgets. I stopped by the booth at CES, unfortunately I missed him each time. Keep up the good work.
